Yes, Ionic 1, Ionic v1, Ionic1 or similar.
ionic as command line command is the Ionic CLI - no matter what version.
Ionic as in “Ionic Framework” refers to Ionic 2 or newer - but it should be just called “Ionic”. (On the technical side this is also known as
ionic-angular as this is its name on npm)[quote=“ghostrunners, post:3, topic:90031”]
but now angular is now referred to version 2+, not version 1, or ng2.
Similar to Ionic v1 vs. Ionic there is AngularJS (Angular1) and Angular (Angular 2 and newer).[quote=“ghostrunners, post:3, topic:90031”]
with this in mind, ionic cli 2.x.x can only support angular versions 2/3, correct?
No, all CLIs (from v2 up) support all versions of Ionic.
Nope, Angular(JS) is different again:
Ionic v1 = AngularJS (Angular 1)
Ionic (v2.x.x) = Angular 2
Ionic (v3.x.x) = Angular 4
But you don’t have to worry about the Angular version at all if you are using (just) Ionic. It’s all Angular, no matter if the version number says 2 or 4. Only version 1 (JS) was different.
Yes, BUT: You can also run
npm run build to just build
/www. This is what
ionic serve and all the other commands do internally.
